    How do you store your posters? I know about the hangers What are some other ways to keep those posters nice and neat and out of sight?

    I use the empty cardboards from the solid colored posters in the teacher workroom, they are very thin, and easy to hide :)

    I put them all in a Ziploc Big Bag and store them between a filing cabinet and the wall.

    For several years, I used a mismatch of boxes and stored them in my school closet...I finally went to a teacher store and purchased 2 of these...I divided them into "Aug-Dec" items and "Jan-May". I love it now! I also typed out what I had in each divided section. :D

    I have 2 of these; the price shown is for the dividers; The box runs under $10 and is so worth it!

    You can also tear off a huge sheet of butcher paper, fold it in half, and staple up the sides. This makes a large envelope. You can label it and then stick all your posters and bb stuff for a unit inside. I have my months color coded, too.

    I have a legal paper sized (if that makes any sense!) filing cabinet that I use. It's super-wide, and all my posters just lie flat in the bottom. I use another drawer to store classroom decorations.

    I use hangers with clips on them and then hang them in my closet. Works really well. :)

    I could not live without my poster boxes and the dividers. I have two of them. I also have the border storage box and the sentence strip storage box. I love them.

    We are storage challenged so they ahve to be out in the classroom so it looks somewhat nest!

    I use a large brown art portfolio that you can find at places like Hobby Lobby or Michaels. (Think art students walking on campus) There is a handle for easy carrying. I slide it between the wall and a cabinet.

    I use art portfolios and poster-sized envelopes. They're flat and can be tucked away in between places.

    Clear BB tote

    I have the storage tote and it is great. Very handy to have. It does get heavy with a bunch of items in it but I have some of my big books in there as well.
    I tried to reply and leave the link in but it won't let me, I'm too new. :)

    I used to get a brown cardboard shipping box, flat the box and tape up the bottom. The posters slid in an out of the opening on the top. I could store the flattened box behind a shelf.
